As the Se­nate re­sumes ple­nary to­mor­row, the up­per cham­ber has said it is not in a hurry to pass the long-awaited and con­tro­ver­sial Petroleum In­dus­try Bill pop­u­larly known as (PIB) be­cause of the tech­ni­cal na­ture of the pro­posed leg­is­la­tion.

Speak­ing to Daily Trust yes­ter­day, Se­nate Leader Vic­tor Ndoma-Egba SAN said the petroleum sec­tor re­form bill was one that is quite tech­ni­cal and as such de­mands that more time be given to it be­fore it is passed.

Ndoma-Egba (PDP, Cross Rivers) pleaded with Nige­ri­ans to be pa­tient with the work of the par­lia­ment be­cause it is not a “fac­tory’ where fin­ished goods are given time dur­ing which they must be pro­duced.
